Did a dive at Pescador Island today and it was great! Saw 2 big octopuses and loads of other cool things. It’s super fast to go to from the shore.

It's better to stay in the south if you want to see Cebu Island. From Cebu City you have to take a ride down to Moalboal. We rented a car for 2000 Pesos per day. We stayed at a resort in Moalboal (Bonita Oasis something) and... More
